Teen detained following assault of Oak Bay Tea Party-goers

Two boys assaulted, one has iPhone stolen by attacker

A 17-year-old Saanich boy accused of assaulting two others and stealing an iPhone outside the Oak Bay Tea Party grounds last Saturday is facing charges of robbery.

At 9:30 p.m on June 1 police investigated a complaint from two 18-year-old men who reported being approached by another teen, who assaulted them and took the phone in the scuffle. One of the teens was taken to hospital for treatment, though no injuries were considered serious.

Police caught up with the suspect 15 minutes after arriving on scene and arrested him. He was released a few hours later into the custody of an adult. Police are recommending a charge of robbery.
